MENTAL RE-ACTION.
SOME PEOPLE MAY BE LITERAL-
LY SCARED TO DEATH
Views of an Eminent Physician of the Retro-
Active Effects of Mind Over Matter—Pain in
Hack Attributed to Disarrangement of the
Kidneys and a Twinge in the Chest Regarded
as the Precursor of Tuberculosis—Fallacies
About the Eyes and Teeth—Tobacco and
Coffee are Not the Disaffectants that Many
Persons Believe They Are.
" Scared to death" is a bit of phrase
ology almost as old as tlic language,
says the Chicago Tribune. It seldom
has been taken literally, in its full
sense, but that its possibilities are
worthy of sober consideration in the
onset of diseases lias been referred to
by l)r. Francis \V. McXamara, of Chi
cago, as a more or less urgent truth.
"No fallacy in the lay mind finds
deeper root than does a medical fal
lacy," said Dr. MeXamara, " and the
necessity of destroying some of these
fallacies is apparent. Some of these
came from misdirected science years
ago; others arc the product of un
trained minds, which have mingled
observations and superstitions. All of
these false notions are obstructions to
the art of healing.
"Think of it! Ten years ago an
up-to-date physician, having a patient
covered with boils, would dose the vic
tim with drugs in order to free his
blood from impurities. He would
even make the remark that each boil
was worth $5 to the patient, as giving
an outlet to impurities in the blond.
" To-dsy any well-read physician
laughs at the idea. He knows that
the boil is of microbe origin ; that the
parasite, perhaps carried by the wind,
lodges in the garments or on the skin
and follows a hair follicle into the
skin, where irritation and pus secre
tions follow. If the person's blood bp
poor and his health bad he is more
likely to become a victim of the boil
germ. Nowadays, instead of the nau
seous medicines given internally, an
tiseptic lotions are applied, and often
the patient suffers only from one boil,
whereas, under old-time methods, he
might have reinfected himself until
he had a dozen.
" How many lives have really been
shortened by a sudden sensation of
pain in the back? A man, bending
over and walking as if on eggs, feels
that he has kidney disease. The pain
is just there. He can caii feel it be
yond doubt as to its location.
"Yet in kidney diseases there is no
pain until, perhaps, suppuration be
gins. The mail's pain is rheumatic,
perhaps, or simply muscular; yet the
fright he gets may have serious conse
quences.
"Another man feels that he is to
have pneumonia, or even tuberculosis,
because, after a slight cold, he feels a
pain in his chest. Now, neither pneu
monia nor tuberculosis starts with
pain. The nagging pain in the rib re
gion or behind the shoulder blade
most frequently is a neuralgic or rheu
matic symptom, following bad or long
continued state of wet feet.
" Many people have an idea that a
a cut between the thumb and finger
or an injury to die sole of the foot is
at all times threatening of lockjaw.
It is—only if the microbe of tetanus
finds lodgment there and multiplies.
If this vegetable growth, common to
garden soil, should find lodgment in a
wound in any other part of the body,
lockjaw would be just as certain. If
the germ docs not get in there can be
no lockjaw.
" Millions of people are made
wretched every year, or, perhaps, have
their live 3 shortened, by feeling that
they have heart disease. They have a
pain in that region, and their own di
agnosis is sufficient to convince them
of the malady. As a matter of truth,
there is seldom any pain from heart
disease. The trouble is indigestion
only. The stomach, lying just under
the heart, is distended to a painful de
gree by gases, and, crowding toward
the heart, perhaps, makes the pain
seem to be in that organ.
"Take the eye. Many people have
the idea that it can be removed from
the head by surgeons. The idea
comes from the fact that with both
eyelids turned inside out the eye
seems to be on the cheek. To remove
the eye, however, with its six muscles
and its thick uerve passing iuto the
brain, would destroy the sight of that
organ forever.
"Often you hear a person say his
sight is failing, but that he will not
put on glasses for the reason that he
would have to continue wearing them.
This is a mistake in modern eye sur
gery, for the reason thai glasses are
now made to correct abnormalities in
the eye itsolf. Defective sight in so
many cases comes from an alteration
in the shape of the lens in the eye.
In the extremely young this lens is al
most round, making the child near
sighted. As the person grows older
the lens enlarges and flattens, until at
old ago we find the person can readily
"Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they May."
see at a distance, but lias trouble to
read or write. Spectacles do not de
lay the flattening of the eye lenses,
but they do gave strain upon the eyes,
and in the long ruu arc beneficial.
" There is a common belief that the
' eye tooth' is connected by a nerve
with the eye, and that to remove this
particular tooth would be dangerous
to the sight. There is no such direct
connection. The facial nerve comes
out of the brain and skull just in
front of the ear, dividing into branches
and sending a shoot to each tooth in
the upper jaw and to each one in the
lower maxillary. Other branches go
to the cheeks, forehead, nose, eyelids,
and even to the eye itself, but the big
optic nerve comes out of the brain di
rectly to the back of the eye and ends
there, so that the eye teeth have no
more connection with the sense of
sight than have one's incisors and
molars.
"Thousands of people believe in the
efficacy of tobacco as a disinfectant.
Coffee, too, burned in a room is sup
posed to be another. But both of
them are valueless. Tobacco smoke
may kid Ilies, but so will water, yet
water is one of the great elements for
the propagation of microbes l'ut
damp tobacco away for a few days and
you will find millions of microbes
feasting upon it, as if it were nectar.
As to the use of tobacco, it rather is
inclined to lower one's vitality and
make disease germs more menacing.
"Whenever an epidemic of influen
za, pneumonia, or like diseases con
fronts us, you can read all kinds of
advice in the newspapers. Most of it
is misleading and harmful. A man
burns a handful of coffee in his base
ment, confident that its fumes rise up
through the house, destroying the dis
ease germs. The idea is preposterous.
" So on, along these lines, one might
point to half a hundred more or less
dangerous fallacies in the minds of
the people. These errors are of two
extremes, but both harmful. In one
case a man having little the matter
with him magnifies a pain or hurt
and scares himself into a state of hy
pochondria. On the other hand, feel
ing that pain should be the forewarn
ing element in certain acute diseases,
he brushes aside other symptoms as
insignificant and lets the disease run
on further than he should before con
sulting medical advice.
"In any case, popular diagnoses
and popular prescriptions are extreme
ly dangerous things."
TO CHANGE A QUARTER
You Must Have Exactly Seventy Cents at Dis-
position.
" How much does it take to change
a quarter?" asked the bartender.
" Twenty-five cents, eh? Not on your
life. It takes 70 cents t« do the trick.
How many ways do you suppose a
quarter dollar can be changed? Just
exactly 11. A fellow of limited means
may like the jingle of coin in his
clothes. In that event you can give
him 25 pennies or 20 penuies and one
nickel, supposing he wants to get a
beer. He may liko to have a little
sprinkling of silver in his clothes, and
you can accommodate him with 15
pennies and a dime, or 10 pennies, n
dime, und a nickel. If he prefers to
have change handy for a beer and a
car fare, why 15 pennies and two
nickels will fix him up, having a little
stock of cash in his jeans, give him 10
pennies and three nickels. That
makes six ways. Now, then, a fellow
with a quarter can trade it off for five
pennies and two dimes, five pennies
and four nickels, two dimes and one
nickel, one dime and three nickels, or
five nickels, just as he prefers. And
to accommodate him in any way that
fie might select you have to possess 25
pennies, two dimes and five nickels—
-70 cents in all."
School Supplies.
" Papa, I must have some school
supplies," remarked Willie at the
supper table.
"Gracious alive!" ejaculated Wil
lie's paps. " Will I never get done
buying school supplies? What do
you ha*e to have now?"
" Well, I got t' hare a football, a
nose shield, a pair of springheel times,
a belt, a flannel shirt, leg guards, a
chunk o' rubber t' hold in my teeth, a
book o' rules an' instructions, a
puncbin' bag, a pair o' dumb bells an'
a sweater. Will you get 'em for me
to-morrow?"
Up in a Balloon.
It is one of the peculiarities of
travel by balloon that you do not feel
anything; all is still with you, no
matter how fast you may be going.
You see, you are riding with the
wind; you move as fast as it moves;
you are part and parcel of it, whether
you wish to be or not. It takes you
in its embrace so firmly, yet so softly,
you do not know it is there. You
may be in the teeth of a hurricane,
but you never know it; all is calm
and placid with you.
01YMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, OCT. 25, 1901.
CAN FRANCE STAND IT 7
Naval Expenditures of That Country are Rapid
ly Burying her Under Tremendous Debt.
The naval expenditures of France
for 1902 is officially proposed to be
$(>2,420,000, which at first sight seems
to he .$9,100,000 less than in 1001, but
if it is taken into account that the
cost of maintaining I lie marine in
fantry and artillery, amounting to
about $5,400,000, has been transferred
lmm the navy to the ministries of war
and the colonies, it is found that the
money that France intends to *i>eml
upon the navy during 1002 is in real
ity $2,1100,000 in excess of the naval
expenses of the current year.
It is a matter of serious considera
tion for the French whether they are
not spending upon their navy more
than their national resources warrant,
says the Paris correspondent of tlio
New \ ork Tribunr. France lias now
piled up a debt involving an annual
charge for interest of nearly $200,000,-
000, or, in other words, every man,
woman and child in France has now
to pay five dollars per annum for in
terest on the national debt. The army
costs the country $132,000,000 a year,
and the total expenditure for 1' 02 is
officially propostd to be 1820,000,000.
Moreover, reflections upon the French
census cause renewed uneasiness.
Last March the population in round
numbers was 38,000,000, being an in
crease of only 330,<»00 since 1800, and
even this meager result is mostly ac
counted for by Paris and its suburbs,
where tire ittcrcase has beetr 202,000,
dire principally to foreign immigra
tion, so that in the rest of France the
population Iras been augmented by
only 38,000 during the last five years.
That is to say, for military and naval
purposes the population is almost sta
tionary, attd in this respect France
stands alone among tire great nations
of Europe.
Under these conditions M. Jattrea,
the Socialist leader and many ad
vanced thinkers among tire radicals
and radical Socialists, hold that it is
impossible for France to have at the
same time a navy attd army of the
first rank, simply because she has not
the resources of men attd money to
maintain bollt.
Letters Which Show the Parentage of Our
Our Potent but Elusive " Plunks."
" All coins of the same denomina
tion look alike to me," says the aver
age person who handles that form of
Biiocie. Yet every coin of the United
Slates of the 25 cent piece and over
shows distinctly wlutt mint it comes
from.
Thery are only four places of coin
age in the entire country. These are
situated at Philadelphia, San Francis
co, New Orleans and Carson City.
The first mint was established at Phil
adelphia, and, as the founding of other
places of coinage was then unforeseen,
there was no necessity for putting a
mark on coins which came from that
city. But as the country grew in ter
ritory, population nnd wealth, and as
the mines in the West were developed
more and more each year, it became
necessary to establish other mints and
to adopt a method whereby the Gov
ernment could keep track of the output
from each place, and, if an error should
occur in the coinage, could at once
locate the mint from which the defec
tive coin bad conic.
All coins are supposed to weigh ex
actly the same as others of the same
denomination. While, 011 the one
hand, but little attention is paid to
the differences in weight that every
day's wear and tear occasions 011 silver
pieces, on the other hand, the slight
est deviation from the fixed standard
in a gold coin necessitates the trouble
of recoining that piece. For these
reasons small marks were put on
coins which came from mints other
than that located at Philadelphia.
To find the mark, turn the coin so
as to observe the tail side. Then look
directly below either the eagle or the
bunch of arrows. If there be a letter
in the place designated, it will be either
a small s, o or the double letters cc.
Those bearing tho letter s are from
the mint at San Francisco. Others
having the letter o are from New Or
leans, while those bearing the letters
cc are from Carson City. If you do
not find any letter on the coin at all,
it is nn indication that the coin came
from the " City of Brotherly Love."
A Matrimonial Joke.
Newly married people are always
targets for the practical joker. Re
cently a marriage was celebrated at
Kewanee, 111., and the happy pair
boarded a train 011 a bridal tour.
They found that joking friends had
gone through the train at a station
earlier in the day and distributed flar
ing circulars headed"sl,oooßeward!"
and reading as follows:
" A newly married pair will board
this train at Kewanee. They have
MINT MARKS.
firmly resolved that thev will not bt
tray the fact either by action, apparel
or word. Their many friends, how-
ever, offer a reward to any person over
two (2) years of age, who may see
them and not immediately recognize
the fact that they are a newly married
couple. Watch for them!
CIRCUMSTANCES ALTER CASES.
It Makes Much Difference Whose Ox is
Gored.
Lincoln Commoner
The partisan prejudice of some men
was fittingly illustrated by an incident
which occurred in a western city dur
ing the sad week of the presidential
obsequies. While the campaign of
11(00 was in progress Democrats had
great sport reading a speech delivered
by Abraham Lincoln in 1858 and inti
mating that it was a portion of a
speech delivered by Mr. Bryan. Re
publicans readily fell into the trap and
denounced it ns " hogwa.-h," "copper
headism." An ex-Congressman stood
011 a prominent corner a few days ago
and denounced the Democrats, and
especially Mr. Bryan, for what he
termed " appeals to class prejudice."
He asserted that these appeals unset
tled the minds of people and made
them discontented with their lot, and
further declared that the language
used by Democratic orators in discuss
ing political questions was indirectly,
if not directly, responsible for the as
sassination of President McKinlcy. A
young man standing by coincided with
this view, and to prove the truth of
the assertion made by the ex-Con
grossman read the following :
" Human rights and privileges must
not be forgotten in the mad race for
wealth. The government of the people
must be by the people, and not by a few
of the people. I'ower, it must be re
membered, which is secured by oppres
sion and usurpation, or by any form of
injustice, is soon overthrown."
"That," asserted the voting man,
" is the kind of talk that is continual
ly stirring up trouble between the dif
ferent elements of our population. It
is the doctrine of discontent."
"That's right!" asserted the t-x-
Congressman. "It is intended to
make the poor bate the rich. It is
intended to make people believe that
our Republic is rapidly becoming an
Empire. It is—"
" Ob, you ought to know better than
to talk that way about this speech de
livered by William McKiuley only a
lew years ago."
The Republican ex-Congressman
looked dazed, then hastily changed
the subject.
Burying Czolgosz
The following resolutions were
adopted by the students of the Ne
braska Wosleyan university:
W IIKKKAS, The sentence has been
pronounced upon Leon Czolgosz, the
assassin of our lamented national ex
ecutive William McKinlcy; and
WHEREAS, We believe that the re
fusal to allow the assassin's remains a
resting place upon American soil
would be as powerful a rebuke to an
archy ns oven bis execution ; therefore,
be it
Rrtolved, That we, the students of
the Nebraska Wesleynn university, in
chapel assembled, hereby indorse as
most appropriate the disposal of the
assassin's body suggested by Chancel
lor Huntington in his memorial ad
dress for the late President, namely:
" I crave for the assassin one mark of
distinction. He has earned it and I
would it might be awarded him. His
bones should never be allowed to min
gle with American soil. When the
death seutencc shall bo pronounced
ancf executed ns it should be with the
swift justice becoming such an un
speakable tragedy, I would wish that
the United Slates government would
take the remains of the atrocious mur
derer a hundred miles to sea, and
then, pinioned and manacled, with his
revolver in his belt and a millstone
chained about bis neck, sink the
corpse a thousand fathoms to the bot
tom of the ocean, that thus the anar
chist might be warned that he shall
not have so much as a grave in a civi
lized land."
How He Talked.
Rubinstein, after a concert tour in
Spain, was asked: "Do you under
stand Spanish?"
" No," be said.
"Then you bad to converse with
the Spaniards in French, I suppose?"
" Not every Spaniard speaks
French."
"Then how in the world did you
talk to them?"
" With the piano," said Rubinstein,
with a smile.
RUSSIA is threatened with the worst
famine for many a year. The Czar
has increased ttic famine fund to 14,-
000,000 rubies and may have to double
this amount before he has secured
food sufficient for his people, Russia
has yet to learn that it will l>e safe to
employ her men in the fields instead
of in the army.
GOVERNMENT WAR MAPS
A Diagram Which Will Show at a Glance the
World's Fighting Attitude
The most remarkable map of the
world and in the world, is shortly to
be installed in that unique sanctum,
the war room of the White House. It
is twenty feet long by eight teet wide,
and it has required foui months of
haul work to make it. Upon this
colossal chart the President and his
successors will study all future wars
and diplomatic conflicts exciting the
world. Over its face, as though it
were a great chess board, miniature
representations of the armies and
fleets of the world will be moved,
while skilled geographers and carto
graphs will continually alter it to
represent changes of boundaries, new
cable lines, interoceanic canals and
whatsoever may after the political
complexion of Mother Earth. The
work of installing the map began
as soon as the President departed
on his summer vacation. Facing
the great chart, the President can
see every point of strategic import
ance upon the entire face of the
earth. North and youth America
loom up in the center of the great
rectangle. Thus the President can
trace progress of ships all the way to
Manila by either the Atlantic or Pa
cific route. He can follow them by
way of the Mediterranean, the lied
Sea. the Indian Ocean and the China
Sea, starting from New York, or em
harking from San Francisco, he can
indicate their progress by way of
Hawaii and Guam. In neither voyage
will his miniature ships run off
the edge of the map. Fourteen colors
arc employed to indicate the political
divisions of the world. There are
eleven distinct colors, each represent
ing a territory of one of the eleven
colony holding powers. Countries
without detached possessions are
designated each by one of three, other
colors distributed about.
Over 1,000 little llags and emblems
bearing Hags are being made to repre
sent the positions of our army ami
navy alone. Each Hag is a square of
parchment of about three-quarters of
ait inch dimension, fastened with red
wax to a long steel pin with a white
glass head. A blue Hag stuck through
a cardboard strip w ill represent each
vessel of our navy, and will have tire
latter's name neatly lettered thereon.
Each army transport will be repre
sented thus, with the addition of a
blue and white Hag surcharged in
black, with the number of officers and
men aboard. Each regiment of iit
frnntry will be designated by a white
(lag, cavalry by a yellow, artillery by
red, engineers by diagonal red and
white, signal corps by white with red
center and hospital corps by a rod
cross. Each General and Admiral
will be designated in the war room
by a Hag bearing bis name. It will
be placed upon the map with noy
regiment or licet which lie may
happen to command in an engage
ment. Each of the foreign armies
and navies will he similarly repre
sented. All naval stations the world
over, and ports where there are docks
sufficiently large to repair our war
vessels, arc shown on tho map; also
coaling stations of the world's navies.
Every ocean cable line iu the world
is shown. The great Transiberian
railway is indicated, because of its
great military value. Similarly are
shown the great railway lines of China.
Fixing liis eye upon this interesting
war-cliart the President can trace at
a glance the intercontinental lines
which transmit not only the acces
sories, but intelligence of international
struggles. The great . map will ho
absolutely up to date, geographically,
to the hour when it is put in place. It
is believed to be the only map in the
world, large or small, which to-day
6hows in exactness and completeness
of detail all of the political sub-di
visions of the newly rccoguized world.
It teaches many interesting lessons
not to be found in our school geog
raphies for several years, at least. The
big map is being made at the coast
and geodetic survey. It was designed,
compiled and finished by E. H.
Fowler, chief draughtsman of that
bureau, who conceived the idea of
thus equipping the President with
such an extensive means for following
the movements of the world's mili
tary evolutions.

A Prize Original Answer.
In onswer to the question, " Who
is the greatest woman in all history?"
put to 200 Macon county (Mo.) teach
ers, Miss Nannie Vickroy of Macon
made a unique answer, which was
awarded the prize for its originality.
Miss Vickroy passed over Queen Vic
toria, Francos Willard, Helen Gould
and other women whose names were
the most popular and declared : " The
wife of the Missouri farmer of modern
means who does her own cooking,
washing and ironing, brings up a
large family of girls and boys to be
useful members of society, and finds
time for her own intellectual and
moral improvements, is the greatest
woman in all history."
Insulted.
Lord Cardwcll was in the habit of
using the church prayers at family
prayers. One day his valet came to
him and said: "I must leave your
lordship's service at once."
" Why, what have you to complain
of?"
" Nothing personally, but your lord
ship will repeat every moruing,' We
have done those things which we
ought not to have done and have left
undone those things which we ought
to have done.' Now, 1 freely admit
that I have often done things I ought
not, but that 1 have left undone
things that I ought to have done I ut
terly deny, and I will not stay here to
hear it said."

Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription
Doubles a Mother's
Joys and Halves Her
Sorrows•
It <locs this by a pre-natal pre
paration in which the mother-finds
herself growing stronger instead of
weaker with each month. Instead
of nausea and nervousness, there are
healthy appetite, quiet nerves, and
refreshing sleep. The mind's con
tent keeps pace with the body's
comfort. There is no anxiety, no
dread of the approaching time of
travail. When the birth hour
comes it is practically painless, the
recovery is rapid, and the mother
finds herself abundantly able to
nurse her child.

no alcohol, neither opiutn, cocaine,
nor any other narcotic.
